Lecture Title: The treatment of infrabony defects in esthetic area

Treatment of gingival recession has become an important therapeutic issue due to the increasing number of cosmetic request from patients. Patients aesthetic demand, due to the exposure, during smiling or function, of portions of the root surface, is the main indication for root coverage surgical procedures. Very often the most coronal millimeter/s of the root exposure is the only visible part of the recession when smiling, therefore the presence and/or the persistence after therapy, even of a shallow recession may be an aesthetic problem for the patient. Thus, complete root coverage, up to the cemento-enamel junction, is the goal to be achieved when patient complains about the aesthetic appearance of his/her teeth. New knowledge in soft tissue surgical management permits to achieve esthetic coverage in gingival recession with minimally invasive connective tissue grafts and a new collagen matrix.
